    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...

    So true...I totally agree. Just wish I had learned it sooner in life. It's amazing how much better life is then you stop fighting and struggling about the relationships that just don't seem to be working. Sometimes we have to "push" a little, but other times we just need to learn to let go and let things be.

    Remember, this also (sadly) can apply to family, as well.

    How wonderful you feel when that burden is lifted. Thanks for reminding us.

    Yeah, but what to do when you can't seem to get away from it at work. You mind your own business, and it (they) won't leave you alone.

    Well said and I would add to that what my late son-in-law always said...."Slow Down and remember what is really important."

    It is sad to let that relationship go but you know it is the right thing to do.... life is just too short to have all that drama in there when it isn't needed... I know at times I am sad about it but my life in a whole is just so much MORE, that you can't really miss is.......
